“What's worse than ants in your pants? Ants in your drink! I have not tried this drink. I'm posting this for safe keeping. I found this recipe in The Fear Factor Cookbook.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup sliced strawberry
  • 6 ounces vanilla or 6 ounces strawberry yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 12 cup orange juice
  • 2 ice cubes
  • 1 black licorice or 1 red licorice
  • peanut butter
  • black decorating gel or red decorating gel


  1. To make the smoothie, combine the strawberries, yogurt, honey, orange juice, and ice cubes in a blender container.
  2. Blend at high speed until mixture is frothy. Pour into a tall glass.
  3. To make the ants, use a pair of scissors to cut bite size pieces of licorice. Make 6-8 ants.
  4. Arrange small dots of peanut butter on the outside of the glass. Stick the licorice ants on the peanut butter for an ant invasion!
  5. Before serving, squeeze some black or red decorating gel (depending on the color of your ants) onto the smoothie. It'll look like some of the ants were blended inches.
  6. Drink quickly so the ants don't attack your drink!
